Helicobacter pylori infection is the major etiologic factor in the development of chronic gastritis and peptic ulcer disease. It is the most common chronic bacterial infection in humans and its prevalence tends to be higher in developing countries than in developed ones. Epidemiological studies conducted in Argentina showed a 40% infection prevalence in symptomatic children and 15.7% prevalence in the asymptomatic population – results similar to those reported in developed countries. On the other hand, it is well known that micronutrient deficiencies affect billions of people in developing countries and iron deficiency remains one of the most severe and important nutritional problems in the world today. According to the 2007 National Nutritional and Health Survey by the Argentine Ministry of Health, the prevalence of anemia evaluated in infants aged 6–24 months and children aged 2–5 years was 34.9% and 10.6%, respectively.
